  1. My understanding is that this going to be handled by the FBI since it's on federal property.Seems right to me. The local police are outmanned and outgunned.
  2. That and the police are outgunned. Unless they've nuclear weaponry, they aren't going to outgun the police. The police have ridiculous amounts of military weaponry. That and the police are outgunned. Machine Guns???? Have I missed some link showing that these guys have some crazy weaponry, or is this another case of ignorant folks seeing a semi-auto rifle and assuming it's a fully-automatic nuclear powered howitzer? The city of Burns, Oregon have 3 officers on staff. I would be surprised if any of them has fired a gun in the line of duty. What is it you expect Andy and Barney to do against these guys?
  3. The Op says How does that stop you from asking questions? Even if the OP said 'no questions', you can still ask them.
  4. Correct.. now do you have any photos or evidence of anyone carrying their firearms inside the facility? If so I will agree that they are in violation and should be prosecuted for sure. No. Are you or others claiming it is an unarmed militia? I have seen photographs of armed men outside a "federal building" I was taking the militia at their word. Maybe they are just camping and its a big misunderstanding.
  5. I'm not surprised. And you people wonder why Donald Trump is a phenomenon. If you keep ####ting on the little guy long enough you may just end up with a REAL armed rebellion on your hands, not a handful of ranchers in a vacant building. We've had plenty of those.

  7. After reading TPW, I want to change sides and prosecute them until they burn.
  8. Some of you need to rewatch 'Up' but change the evil builder to the federal government. That #### happens all the time.
  9. I agree, any protest or occupation of any building or any state owned land by any group should be ruthlessly crushed by the State. I am very sympathetic of people protesting, even when I disagree with them, but an armed take over of a federal building is about where I draw the line. What exactly is an armed takeover of an unmanned property. Isn't that just trespassing at this point? I am not even sure who has arms yet.Exactly. If you're legally allowed to be armed, I fail to see why that is even part of the story short of sensationalism. They are illegally armed if they are inside a federal building.

  11. That behind said, I would have expected they would have come up with a way so the old man wouldn't serve additional time.
  12. Your order of what happened is wrong.Which part Move 'get released' behind 'the government says the sentence was wrong'. What's the difference? He served his time issued by a judge. he government is allowed to appeal. They did and they won.
  13. They sort a legal fire that they took financial responsibility for when it spread. No one was hurt.

  15. Because of the original jail sentences for burning 127 acres or because of the re-sentencing? I would like find more in depth coverage on this situation from a reliable source. It appears to me that the Federal government is being very aggressive with them due to the government wanting their land. For example, they are no longer allowing grazing due to the arson conviction. Ok. I've read more since that previous post and disagree with your take. Fair enough. I have seen how far the government will go when they want land that someone owns.
  16. What I read was the Hammonds set fires intentionally. There is a minimum sentence for doing this that a judge ignored just before retiring. A second judge determined that they should serve the minimum. In the same article the Hammonds were saying through a lawyer that they don't want these militia dudes there. The Hammonds say they will be turning themselves in on Jan. 4th as required by the court.

  18. I'd offer hem a reality show that follows Duck Dynasty and arrest them when they show up on set.
